About the MPO pix

Welcome to the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization. 

The Broward MPO is a federally-mandated agency that is responsible for making policy on local transportation issues and deciding how to spend federal money on transportation projects within Broward County. The MPO seeks to address overall mobility needs within the County, based on the needs and aspirations of residents, businesses, and visitors. The mission of the MPO is to collaboratively plan, prioritize, and fund the delivery of diverse transportation options. The Broward MPO’s vision is that our work will have measurable positive impact by ensuring transportation projects are well selected, funded, and delivered.

The voting members of the MPO Board are elected officials who represent the Broward County Board of County Commissioners, the 31 Broward municipalities, the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA/Tri-Rail) and the Broward County School Board.  The MPO works with transportation stakeholders who represent all segments of the MPO’s planning areas: individual members of the public, civic and community groups, government agencies and planning organizations at the local, county, state and federal levels.

MPO Districts

The MPO Districts were developed to balance the voting powers of the MPO Board. Cities with similar characteristics (such as transportation related challenges) were grouped together to form these districts. The number of votes each district received derived from general population size, employment population, as well as a variety of other factors. The map in the link below will show voting structure and boundaries of each MPO district.

Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP) 

Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP)-- This Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) was prepared by the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to develop, implement and maintain a viable COOP capability. This COOP complies with applicable internal agency policy, local and state regulations, and supports recommendations provided in the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Federal Preparedness Circular 65. This COOP has been distributed internally within the Broward MPO and with external agencies that may be affected by its implementation.
